Thursday, July 26: Matt Endahl’s Doomsday Philharmonic
Pianist and former Ann Arbor resident Matt Endahl has played with heavyweights like Steve Coleman, Jimmy Heath and Henry Grimes. Now he returns to town with his new unit, The Doomsday Philharmonic. The Doomsday Philharmonic is an improvisation group, influenced by the large ensemble dynamics of Anthony Braxton, Sun Ra, Miles Davis and Cecil Taylor. The Philharmonic’s 12+ improvise as “ensembles within an ensemble”, arranging into quartets, trios, duos and soloists, to perform Jacob’s Ladder, a structured improvisation based on the atoms of DNA. This is sure to be a unique musical experience, for the audience, as well as for the members of the band.
Doors at 8 pm; $10.
